    ATV Mods..Can we get a collection of ideas?

    From spray tanks to tank bags and homemade bumpers to pull carts.

    Wife and I (both avid hunters) just finished spring-tuning our quads. (07' Honda Rancher 400at 4x4's)

    I have some downtime, and I'm looking at doing these both up with as many DIY's as I can. I'm looking for fun/useful ideas that I can make here at home!

    Also, any idea's on a similar extra fuel supply like rotopax?
    Pay it forward.

    Home built ATV cart. Machined hubs to accept Honda bolt pattern so all wheels are the same. Expanded metal lets water drain out, covered with a 3/4" "cow mat". Axle is built with an offset for high ground clearance over rough terrain and through the river. Set back further on the trailer to prevent tongue from bouncing with unbalanced loads. Side boards are removable. Fold down rear gate for dragging in big deer...

    DIY snorkel kits are pretty cool and I think it's fairly easy on the Ranchers.

    Here a few photos of a few of my DIY atv related projects.

    Here is my trailer, the bed is 44" x 60" and has the same track as the atv so that it can follow any place the atv can go. The bed tilts, sides and tailgait are removable, and it has carried better than a 1000 lbx not problem.











    Here is the "Raise-A-Rack" made out of some scap tubing I had laying around. It is an alternative to trying to load a deer on the back rack by ones self.



    Receiver mounted stand carrier.



    Front and rear custom receivers with winch mount.

    For what I use it for, I wouldn't trade my Traxter for any new machine out there.

    here are some pictures of my redneck engineering. i sprayed about 55 acers with it saturday.
    25 gallon tank, 4 tips, in-line filter, shut off valves (to close the 2 outside tips, perfect for walking trails).
    i run about 8 to 12 mph.

    i hooked the line to the drain spout of the tank to get better flow to the pump.
    i used to have this tiny tube, that ran down into the tank, it would get clogged alot. the inline filter on the
    outside keeps you from having to stick your hand down into the tank. i could get about 2.5 more feet of cover,
    if i spaced it more, but i like all the over spray cause it kills everything. alot of times i will be in weeds shoulder
    high or taller.

    i mounted it with wood screws to 2x4's, so that if i clip a tree, it will break away. it works, i found that out once the hard
    way comming down a trail at night after spraying. i just attached the 2x4 to a metal bracket that i use for my herd seeder.
    i love this thing, lol.
